Hello to Y'all: We have been towing a small pop-up for over ten years but now want to move into something a little bigger and more secure for camping and traveling. Our TV is a 2005 V6 Toyota 4Runner with a stated towing capacity of 5000 lbs. I would like to keep the trailer GVWR to around 4000 lbs. This whole process of considering trailers is about to drive me over the edge. Too many questions, should we get a simple hard side? Well, they are pretty tight and we want to sometimes have another couple or a few grandchildren along. Should we get a hybrid? This brings up security questions, especially in bear country. How about a Trail Manor? We've looked at one and it seems well made, however, the fridge is pretty small and there are a lot of moving parts. I kinda like the looks of the Casita, but the wife thinks it is claustrophobic. We are trying to balance weight and gas mileage against room, convenience and comfort and simply cannot make a decision. We are missing out on used trailer opportunities and need advice. Since we really have not had the chance to talk to many RV folks, I am hoping that some of you might be able to throw some light onto our research. Thanks a whole lot!
